  2. Its honestly not that hard. And I'm not sure what you might be looking at, but I spent almost as much on my Tie pilot as I did my stormtrooper. We are here to help you, can walk you through just about every step to building a kit, and make sure you get everything you can out of the process. It's my opinion that building your own kit is a right of passage. There are those that just wish to buy and go, which is cool too, but there's just something special about taking a kit from a pile of plastic, to the fear inducing stormtroopers! Just a couple of things, this page is dedicated to the stormtrooper and several variations. The Tie pilot has it's own forum, as does every other costume from Star Wars. We are primarily a 501ST LEGION page, but are here to help regardless if your looking to join or not (but we hope you do). If it IS your plan to join the 501st ranks, I would also suggest you jump onto the forum of your local garrison. There you will learn who is in your area, and see what we call "armor parties" locations and such. At these armor parties there are well versed people that will help you hands on with building your kit. If you have any questions at all, we are here. Again, welcome to THE home of the white armor.

  4. Shouldn't be an issue then. But you can always ask the vendor, they will know better than anyone. Do you have a vendor in mind? Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  5. Welcome! I guess my question is who trimmed it? if its from the vendor then it should be fine. they do what we call a "pre-trim" which means all or most the Extra stuff has been cut away. But if its from a single person, I would use caution. They may have trimmed it to fit them, and some parts may not work for you, which can cause issues, shimming, or all together need for new parts.
  6. Sorry I have to disagree. None of these pics look like the Anovos paint. But as we said we dont go for screen used, we go for standardized Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  7. Hmmm, I would leave it has it is. A little flex is a good thing. And it's all about dealing with the cracks as they come. You dont want to start adding unnecessary weight, although FG is light. As far as the ab parts, your not going to be putting a ton of stress there. Or at least I haven't seen issues. But what I did was put the rivets in as non functional, and glued snap plates over them. This way there is no actual stress on the holes for the rivets. It's not necessary for L3, they just need to line up, not be functional. I did however change the middle section of webbing from webbing to ABS to hold its alignment. You can see it here: Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  8. Yet another reason I hate Anovos...Those teeth look horrible...to me anyways. wish they didn't leave so much white and the top and bottom. Welcome though, and glad you finally got your stuff. Your in good hands here, and we will help you reach your goal of being amount the very best at L3.
  9. You need to paint the rivet heads on the kidneys Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  10. Looks like your trying the traditional way of keeping the shin closed. I would put velcro there. It wont have any bearing on your level of approval Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  11. Had a problem with my belt too, so I heated the plastic just a little and bent the belt so it would keep its shape, and not try and straighten out. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  12. Absolutely, its what we are here for, but hey since your here, stick around and look into the TK (stormtrooper). Tons of things to do with it also! Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  13. Ah ok. Are you on the jolly roger page? This page is for stormtroopers. Not complaining just want to make sure you get the right help. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  14. Welcome! Ok your gonna have to enlighten me, inferno kit? Never heard of it. Where is it from? And what drew you to that kit? Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  15. Welcome! Cant wait to see your build! Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
